    Hi, Jannette,

    Who are you trying to attract to your session? The people who aren't interested in Agile? They're unlikely to be at an Agile conference. Who else might be your target audience?

    The abstract is the place where you sell your session to the right prospective attendees. Help them recognize themselves and their situation, and tell them what benefits they'll get by attending. Give them enough information about the content to convince them that they'll get that benefit.

    The outline/structure is the place where you sell your session to the reviewers. Help them recognize that you'll deliver on your abstract. Give them details about the content and the way that you'll present it to convince them that you'll do a good job.
